challenge ever to chavez's 14-year rule. >>> steve has the latest live from miami. is it finally good-bye chavez? >> it's really tough to call but this is, as you said, the most serious challenge to hugo chavez. he's been in power 13 years. he wants six more but there's a lot of negatives this time for chavez. for one, venezuela has the highest inflation rate in the region, more than 20%. one of the highest murder rates in the world and there are basic shortages of food and electricity blackouts. on the plus side chavez has strong support among the poor, prided subsidies for housing, medicine and food. his eye opponent, a younger, vigorous man describes himself as center left. chavez has been battling cancer and had at least two operations in addition to chemotherapy. so a contrast in vigor between the two candidates. the stakes are high. generalize wail sits on the largest oil reserves in the world. and under chavez, venezuela had a strident anti-u.s. policy. as far as the voters here, the ex pats in miami have been heading to new orleans by the thousands. during a 16-hour bus ride,
. steve centanni is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: one is bob corker a member of the foreign relations committee saying the benghazi incident is more bizarre every day. he wrote a letter to the director of national intelligence. it says 18 days ago the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign policy. >> the response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. in this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself but the problem is bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> reporter: he said he would let others decide if the president was involved in a cover-up. meantime, obama advisors respond

in a new direction. steve is like in miami with this story. steve, is this really a legitimate election? >>reporter: it is very tough to tell based on polls inside venezuela. they do have a sophisticated voting system and the number of outside analysts say it will be a fair election. the question is, if one person does hold all the power as chavez does, he controls the media and the courts, he controls billions in oil money, can they have a fair democratic election? it is clear this will be a test for chavez, perhaps the first different in his 14 years of rule inside venezuela. he has had a number of things that have brought him down in the polls: high inflation, the highest murder rates, electric power outages. he is still enjoying strong support from the poor and he subsidizes housings and that gives him support. he has battled cancer the past year, but now he says he is cancer free. this time around he has a young, energetic opponent and he is 40 years old, a firm governor who has crisscrossed the country giving chavez the first fight in 14 years. in southern florida we have seen th
david axelrod said, we don't need a president who shoots first and aims later. >> steve centanni, strong words on the show this is morning. >> reporter: you bet. >> eric: how will the handling of the attack effect the race for the white house? 43% of likely voters disapprove of the president's handling of the situation so far and 39% approve. will this put new focus on the foreign policy of the administration. >> brad and joe, good to see you here. >> good to be with you, eric. >> eric: brad, how do you think this will play into the campaign? >> i think, eric, it gets stranger and stranger each day. lives are being exposed. coverups are being exposed and frankly, it's clear to me that this didn't fit the political narrative that the white house wanted to have the american people believe. that is that osama bin laden is dead and al qaeda has been destroyed. osama may be dead, errickic, but al qaeda is killing american personnel and destroying american property. there is a heck of a lot of answers that have to be forthcoming, like why hasn't the fbi been able to get in there. how is it tha
